Asbestos is a hazardous substance which can cause serious health implications if it is not treated correctly and can only be disposed of at Lynnbottom Recycling Centre.

The Isle of Wight Council does not collect asbestos from households.

Limited amounts of cement bonded asbestos (such as the standard and corrugated sheets of asbestos used to build garages, sheds etc) can be disposed of at the Lynnbottom Recycling Centre.

If a householder wishes to dispose of domestic asbestos at Lynnbottom Recycling Centre a reference number must be obtained before disposal.

A reference number will be allocated to the householder, when the online asbestos disposal permit form has been completed and submitted by the householder. 

The online form generates a unique reference number which can either be printed, given verbally or shown via a smart phone screen and provided to the weighbridge operator.

Permits are restricted to 60kg free of charge per household in a 6 month period (60kg is approximately 4 standard corrugated sheets).

If a household wishes to dispose in excess of the 60kg at Lynnbottom Recycling Centre, there will be a charge of £0.36 per additional kilo

Please Note: payment can only be made by credit or debit card as cash payments cannot be accepted.  Cheques may be used, made payable to ‘Amey LG Ltd’, although a cheque guarantee card (i.e. a debit or credit card) will be required to be shown at the time of payment.

All asbestos must be double-bagged or wrapped in heavy duty plastic and securely cable-tied or taped shut before arrival at Lynnbottom Recycling Centre.  All asbestos must be in unbroken sheets and be domestic in origin.  Staff on site will direct the householder to the correct container in which deposit their domestic asbestos.

We are not able to accept this material at Afton Marsh HWRC due to Environment Agency permit restrictions.
